Be Bushfire Ready!
As warmer weather approaches and the bushfire season gets underway, now is a good time for residents to ensure their property is bushfire ready. The bushfire season can pose a serious threat to property and it is important that homeowners take a proactive approach to reducing any risk. For blocks over 2000 square metres a three metre fire break should be established around the perimeter. For smaller properties, owners should remove flammable material, such as dead plants and long dry grass, from the entire block and lawns should be mowed regularly. With high temperatures once again predicted for summer, it makes sense to be bushfire aware and ready. The bushfire season runs from 1 November 2017 to 30 April 2018.
